Beverly Hills Cop

Poster for the movie "Beverly Hills Cop"

“Beverly Hills Cop” launched Eddie Murphy’s international movie career and was the biggest box office hit of 1984, but is it overrated?

No, dummy.

This is the police comedy that brought us the banana in the tailpipe, the synth sounds of “Axel F,” the lovable Judge Reinhold at Det. Rosewood and Bronson Pinchot’s bizarre accent.

Does Eddie Murphy’s laugh get annoying? God yes. Do the action sequences make sense? Hell no. But “Beverly Hills Cop” gets our Shat Stamp of Approval. Find out why, and let us know what you think!
